Owner description: Rethink how to explore a holiday destination. With Vespas equipped with TomTom GPS, you are in control. Knowing the city like the back of your hand, will open up doors to Barcelona, you might never have imagined existed.We have preloaded the TomToms with several tours, for you to explore the major points of the city, but the true beauty of it all is, that you are completely FREE to go, exactly where you want, when you want.Our goal at Vesping is, to give you a taste of what Barcelona really has to offer and not "just" the highlights. We are dedicated to a high level of service, with final prices, leaving you to relax and enjoy, without worrying about extra costs.We really hope to see you dive into the city on one of our Vespas - for sure you will enjoy it!

Reasons to do it:
- Perfect if you are a couple and you wish to see a lot in a small time.
- No need to read the public transport maze of a map - just climb on board and ride.
- Even during the hot day its great with the wind in your hair!
- amazing service - guys are great
- pre-set tours were great and you can stop wherever you wish
- parking for mopeds is free and there are always free spaces
- better value for money for two people (€32/person) than the all access passes to the public transit system

Tips:
- The GPS was very useful but dont expect miracles
- weekends have less traffic
- 50cc one worked great - no need to get the big one.
- Grab it for 24h offer but dot forget some warm clothes as even in the summer it gets chilly riding at night
- Definitely go to the mountains, Platz Espania and the Olympic village.
- sunscreen or sun-SCREAM - your choice :)
- should go without saying but - DONT DRINK - besides being dangerous for you and others, cops do stop you and check for alcohol

I highly recommend giving yourself at least a day with the Vespa. We are a couple and decided to get just one and that was perfect. We explored the entire city; going up to the highest points and parcs, back down Las Ramblas, Parc Olympique, and along the water. It was absolutely by far the best way to see the city. We didn't feel unsafe at all and having a GPS ensured we didn't get lost. The owner of the shop gave us so many tips including how to do a a couple tours and squeeze in a few good eats as well. He also gave us great recommendations for dinner at night! I can't stress enough how much we felt this was such a highlight for our trip.

After several e-mails with one of the owners(the company is owned by two brothers) i've decided to go with 125cc vespa for 4 days.
Best choice i've done in my trip,without the scooter Barcelona is just another place but trust me those guys know how to make you feel like a citizen not a tourist,we just cruised everywhere we wanted with no problem.
Forget tourist buses forget tourist restaurants forget tourist beach...just rent a scooter and live like a citizen,you will love Barcelona instantly!
Vittorio(the owner) was like a good friend with us,it didn't felt like a stranger in fact we are still exchanging emails and i just can't wait for my next trip in Barcelona.
Thank you guys so much!

My boyfriend and I went to Vesping to rent a Vespa, but we were unable since we didn't have an international drivers license. We could have without since we have scooter experience, but the the owner and his brother warned us that the police pull over vespas often and let us know that the ticket would be a hefty penalty. They could have not told us this and just taken our money, but they didn't and it was much appreciated.

Even though we didn't rent a scooter, Victorio (I believe was his name), spent 45 minutes with us outlining all the sites to see in Barcelona. He basically went over all the places that would have been on our GPS. It was SO helpful! He also told us to come back anytime if we needed to use their computer and printer to print out tickets for any of the sites, which we did. He also printed out some personal emails that I need urgently. I cannot say enough good things about the people at Vesping. And just FYI, they also have apartments for rent in Gracia..so if you're looking for a place, call them! Can't wait to go back with the proper license and actually be able to give these guys business. They are super kind and helpful folks. :)

Going out to Barcelona we were recommended many different ways to get around and see the sights but nobody recommended via a moped. Being the adrenaline junkey I am I made the suggestion on got on the hunt and found vesping. This place is as good as the reviews it was a fantastic way to get around town. It allowed us to get it done how we wanted in our own time. Definately great value for money. But Natalie the girl who worked there was fantastic she sat us down and went through the town map and made sure we knew the exacts place to go from the best views to the best restaurants!

Top stuff and will definitely be using again when I go back!
